Minority Report-style Interface for Viewing Gigapixel Photos

Gigalinc is an “immersive photography” project by University of Lincoln student Samuel Cox that allows people to explore gigapixel photographs on a giant display using arm movements and hand gestures. Using an Xbox Kinect sensor for motion detection and a large cinema display, the resulting user interface is strikingly similar to the interface Tom Cruise uses in Minority Report.

    I’d say that “strikingly similar” is somewhat of an overstatement. :-) Nevertheless it is an interesting technology which we will most likely see a lot more to everywhere in the future.
